Its my go-to-breakfst apart from oatmeal and smoothies!
I usually mix about 6-7 tablespoons with dried goji berries, mulberries, aronia berries and a couple of almonds. I boil up a bit more than a cup of unsweetend almond milk, stir it in and let it cook for about 10 minutes. During the summer months I usually had it with fresh strawberries and coconut flakes. So, so good!

^^yeah i read you have to wash it first... like when you do to rice before preparing sushi... but other than that seems a really easy process, the rest is cooked like in 5 minutes.

I like quinoa very much, it's often on my menu. I prepare it with similar combinations like rice (which I don't like so much, I find quinoa and even bulgur much tastier); like with vegetables, tofu etc.

I like quinoa, but it's kind of costly for what it is. I've been making lentils a lot though and those are good + have a lot of fiber.

Btw that bitter thing with quinoa is its natural protection mechanism to discourage eating it

I can't find anything to replace cream in my coffee... I've tried soymilk but that's more like milk and I really hate milk in my coffee.

This is actually a big problem : )

^ Do you mean that you'd like something a bit richer than soymilk? There are soy creamers out there. But may I suggest coconut milk (not the very dilute kind in cartons) or coconut cream? Rich and a delicious warm-nutty flavor, without being too coconutty.

Thank you : ) I'll try the coconut cream when I find it!

Yes, something richer and if possible closer to the taste of cream. I used something creamy made from oats (I think) but that one was too sweet. Cream is a bit sour as well...

I don't believe any cows will be spared if I give up cream in my coffee but it's the one thing that makes me hold on to dairy.

Just have to say, I'm loving this maple bacon tempeh. It's really good as a substitute for a BLT or on a salad.

Rova, have you ever tried soy cream instead od milk? I like it very much but you cannot whip it.
Though I hate soy milk (and yogurts), I prefer rice one.

I prefer soy milk in my coffee even though i am not 100% vegan. I don't much care for milk.

Jinadaze, no I don't think I have... My local store is a small one and there aren't many vegetarians here so I doubt they have soy cream, but I found it online now.
What brand do you like?

Speaking of the little selfish devil, this online vegan shop has quinoa milk : )
There's also almond cream and dry (powder?) milk of various nuts or sesame.

I can't remember ever tasting milk of almond or sesame... I guess it's not something that goes with coffee, or?

The cream I'm using has 40% fat. I don't like the cream that's actually for coffee and that one has 12 %. Conclusion -I'm addicted to caffeine and fat?

I usually have a soy cream from Vitaquell, but I think every vegan food brand has it's own so it's doesn't matter which one you take.

I have tried sesame milk but didn't like it, it's watery and pretty tasteless (somewhat bitter). But all those vegan milks are apropriate for coffee. Though I have to agree with you on this point; they are very low fat and the taste is not so rich as with cow's milk, so you really may consider soy cream instead.

Well, a was going to bake an almond cakes but didn't have any regular cream for the topping, so I tried to whip the soy one and it kinda worked.
